Greg Sargent, The Washington Post Published 8:40 am CDT, Monday, August 19, 2019 As President Donald Trump prepares to run for reelection on the claim that his populist nationalist agenda has been a smashing success, it's awfully telling that Trump and his advisers have now launched a frantic, multi-front effort to deny glaring truths about that agenda that are all right there in plain sight, for all of us to see. A new report in The New York Times documents an emerging pattern: Trump is increasingly explaining away warning signs of a potential recession by resorting to lurid conspiracy theories.

Q: Okay. If you want to start, you can make us the case, once again, why the Convention Center expansion is so essential to the future of San Diego or is it?TERZI: That’s a… it’s a leading question, but… yeah, I can tell you that we’ve been making the case over a lot of years, and the case probably is never stronger than it is today. When you look at the Convention Center and the capacity of the Convention Center and the demand for the Convention Center and the economic value of conventions they… they’re all increasing in spite of what some people might say in the industry that conventions are dying, convention centers are sitting there empty.
